Resampling data

Options 7, 8 and 9 allow the user to bootstrap, permute or simulate missing data for the dataset. If a bootstrap is chosen, then a new dataset of the same size will be resampled (with replacement) from the original data. A permutation simply permutes the trait values. The simulation of missing data requires a percentage level to simulate: That percentage of markers will then be set to unknown. These options are examined in more detail in Section 2.4.2.

Selecting 7, 8 or 9 will do the requested action, write the output and exit. The other options require you to specify when to write and exit. You also have the option of exiting without writing anything.
